The Hario V60 is a brewing method developed by the Japanese. It is a method well known in Europe and just a few years ago, introduced in America. It uses a much thinner filter than the Chemex. Its spiral design forms an interior that facilitates the circulation of air. This circulation diminishes the time of filtration exposing soft characteristics to the drink with delicate flavor and a light body. Some common materials to manufacture the Hario V60 are steel, ceramic and plastic.
It is important to use a medium grind when brewing your coffee in the Hario V60. A fine or coarse coffee grind will completely effect your cup of coffee.
What you will need
- Hario V60
- Hario filter
- 12 ounces of water
- 2 tablespoons of medium grind coffee
Step by Step instruction to brew the perfect coffee cup with the Hario V60.
Step 1. Boil 12 ounces of water until it reaches a temperature of 92° C.
Step 2. Place the filter in the Hario V60. Use 4 ounces of the boiled water to moist the filter. This will remove unwanted flavors from the filter and it will also preheat the container.
Step 3. Remove the water used to moisten the filter and preheat the container.
Step 4. Add 2 table spoons of medium grounded coffee into the filter. Note: For a coffee cup with a stronger body add more coffee grounds. Use less coffee grounds for an even lighter body coffee cup.
Step 5. Bloom the coffee by slowly pouring 3 ounces of water and let stand for 30 seconds.
Step 6. Add the rest of the water to the coffee in a circular form. By doing this you are ensuring to extract all of the flavors provided by the coffee grounds.
Step 7. Once the coffee drip is minimal, remove the filter and sway the container in a circular motion to homogenize the drink.
Step 8. Pour and Drink
Preheat the cup prior to pouring the brewed coffee and enjoy an excellent Cano cup of coffee.
